In Oklahoma, the county treasurer is generally required to notify the property owner before selling the property at a tax auction. This usually involves sending a written notice to the last known address of the property owner, as well as any other parties who may have a legal interest in the...View More
Surgical hospital sued me back in October 2017 and the surgery was in November 2012. I was served papers to answer their question and sent it back and that was the last time I heard anything but I filed chapter 7 and the surgical hospital was in it and was discharged. I tried selling my house and... View More
Last contact with debtor was a letter dated 2015 asking for debt forgiveness.
I've responded to the Motion for judgement and motioned for case dismissal, with copy of letter to creditor with Affidavit. Motion to dismiss was that the debt is 7 yrs old and well passed the statute of... View More
Your veteran status has no bearing on anything. A motion to dismiss is inappropriate as a response to a motion for judgment. If you did not answer the allegations of the complaint, the plaintiff obtained a default. If you did, your answer may not have raised, in the eyes of the plaintiff, any...View More
Assuming this is in litigation, a set of Requests for Admissions, if it is true, Admit, if not true, Deny, if you do not know the response may be “Responding Party has insufficient information and can, therefore, neither admit or deny.”
Note, there can be penalties for not admitting...View More
While each state may have its own rules, Requests for Admissions are the same in any type of case and the requirement for how they are answered are the same. General objections are not usually allowed unless there is something wrong with the request itself.
This is something that an Oklahoma attorney is best suited to advise on, but your question remains open for four weeks. If this is something in the lawsuit stage, an ordinary letter might not suffice as a response. There could be more formal legal responses needed. Unfortunately, it's...View More
I am sorry for your loss. I would recommend that you contact a probate attorney to discuss your husband's estate (assets and debts) and specifically the question you have posted. A probate attorney might be the best attorney to assist you in determining how to handle (or fight) the judgment...View More
Oklahoma allows pro se representation so no you do not have to use a lawyer. However I would advise you to use one because there are a lot of things that can get missed if you are not familiar with the process.
What is your question? They are not required to settle. Once they have a judgment they can garnish your wages for 25% and put a lien on your property. If you allowed the property to be repossessed years ago you might have a defense but you would need to speak with an attorney. Good luck!!
Whether you remember the check or not is irrelevant. However, if the bogus check was from 15 years ago and they have made no efforts to collect (lawsuit, garnishment, etc.) then they would be past the statute of limitations.
There is no property owned nor any other asset to go to probate. He leaves me a single parent of our 4 children, all under the age of 13. He was the only one working. I have been a homemaker for the length of our 14 yr marriage. He did have a life insurance policy for $25000. But no other financial... View More
Yes, you can be held responsible for the medical debt of your spouse. You can see if you can negotiate a lower amount with the creditors or you can see if bankruptcy would be an option for you to discharge the medical debt. Good luck!
